Zodiac, Self

It's concerning.

Have you ever noticed that no matter how amazing you feel, there’s always someone who can see beyond your confident facade and gets worried about you? It could be your parent, your sibling or your best friend, but whoever it is, they know when you’re putting on a brave face and can see that you’re struggling.

Some people just worry that’s how they’re wired. It doesn’t matter how much you tell them that you’re fine and that your horoscope says you're doing great — they still see the bags under your eyes or notice when you don't seem to have your normal high energy.

It can be difficult to listen to someone else when we’re sure we know what’s best for us, and that they don't realize it's more than okay if we work long hours without a dinner break. They're worrying for nothing.

Are you listening to your body and acknowledging the signs that you need to slow down and take better care of yourself, or are you continuing to go full force without any plans to slow down and decompress?

You need to hear what the people who care about you are saying. If they are worried about your behavior or how you’re living your life, you need to take them seriously. If you ignore not only what your gut is telling you but what a loved one is, you could find yourself in a serious state of exhaustion or even worse.

Here's why people worry about each zodiac sign and what they can do about it.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

People worry about you because your ego tends to get in your way and you make foolish decisions. You're so sure everything will be fantastic that you don't look at the big picture. You make split decisions, never thinking about the facts or the consequences of these decisions.

If something seems too good to be true, it probably is, but you refuse to see that until it's too late and you've gotten hurt. Taking chances is good, taking stupid, ill-advised risks are not.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

People worry about you because you can be somewhat passive. It's as if you want success to just come and find you without having to do any of the legwork.

You have many talents, but no one is just going to present you with opportunities to showcase them. You've got to get out there and cultivate some opportunities for yourself. You've got the goods, so stop passively waiting for someone to discover you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

People worry about you because of your procrastinating. You start things with energy and somewhere along the way, you lose steam and just stop. You know you need to go back and finish, but you continue to put it off until it seems pointless and silly.

If you don't have an end product, you don't have anything to show for your labors. You have so many great ideas, but they mean nothing if you never complete them.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You give so much to others that you tend to forget that you have needs too. It's clear that the most important thing for you is to make sure that the people you love are well cared for, but you have to make time for you.

Putting yourself on your list of priorities isn't selfish, it's self-care. Not taking care of yourself can lead to some dangerous health issues. Remember, your needs matter too.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

People worry about you because of your impatience. You have an "I want it all and I want it now" attitude. But you can't always have things right when you want them, and the stress that your impatience causes you isn't good or healthy.

Try to come up with ways to keep your focus without stressing out when something doesn't happen as quickly as you want it to.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

People worry that you're easily taken advantage of. It's not that you're weak or gullible, it's just that you don't want to let anybody down. You tend to agree to anything that someone asks you, even if you end up resenting them the whole time.

It's more than okay to say "No" every now and then. People will still like you and still want to have you in their lives.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

People worry about you because you will unexpectedly fly off the handle when you reach your breaking point. Instead of bottling up your emotions until you can't stand it any longer, how about expressing your feelings (even the negative ones) as you go along and avoiding the big blow-ups? 

It's not just alarming when the usually charming you have a meltdown, it's damaging to your relationships.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

People worry about you because you can get obsessive — and not just about people. If you're doing research or working on a project, you get completely immersed in it and will barely come up for air, or you get obsessed with a person, and it becomes your reason for being.

Yes, it's fascinating to live a life of passion, but not everything needs to be high drama or immersion therapy.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

People worry about you because sometimes you don't take things seriously enough. It's great to see the funny and sunny side of life, but that's not all there is to life. Sometimes you need to face the hard stuff, even when it's tough.

Being responsible doesn't mean being boring, it means taking care of the things you have to so that you have the freedom to have the fun experiences you crave.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

People worry about you when you get fixated on something and won't see reason. You can be stubborn and when you think you're right about something, it doesn't matter how many people tell you that you're wrong — you'll forge ahead.

Sometimes that determination is a great asset to have, but other times you make foolish and dangerous decisions. It takes a lot to get you to change your viewpoint, and that inflexibility can turn around and bite you in the ass.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

People worry about you and your loneliness. You enjoy being on your own and doing things solo, but you can get lonely.

Opening your heart to another human is a wondrous thing — don't shut yourself off to love and companionship just because you enjoy your independence. You can be independent and be in a relationship too.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

People worry about you because you can be a bit of a defeatist. Why should you put out there when you'll only fail anyway?

You need to believe in yourself and know that you can accomplish anything. Don't stop yourself with negative thinking before you even begin.
